There's been a massive shift from all things physical to the digital space given the Covid-19 pandemic, and this year's Black Friday will be no different. Over the past decade, Black Friday deals have seen sales skyrocket for both brick-and-mortar retailers and their e-commerce counterparts with a 2019 GeoPoll study showing a 16% increase in reported Black Friday shopping between 2017 and 2019.

In 2020, online retailers can expect a bumper sales period over Black Friday and Cyber Monday (BFCM) as shoppers avoid physical retail stores and shopping malls over Covid-19 fears.
